Bohemia Interactive isn't the only studio dealing with hackers stealing user info. Konami is reporting that the publisher has suffered over 35K unauthorized logins from nearly4M attempts to the Konami ID portal, used by Pro Evolution Soccer players, using IDs and passwords leaked from an unnamed third party.

The publisher stated that names, addresses, dates of birth, telephone numbers and email addresses were accessed and possibly taken, so players are advised to change their passwords here.

Konami has also taken steps to strengthened its security and monitoring level.

Is it me or have the hackers been getting better at this lately? When was the last mass hacker attack,two weeks ago? There may be a large number of these guys working in tandem to do this sort of stuff and if that`s the case we are in big trouble.

Just today, it seems. Bohemia was also attacked.
I hate when they do something like this.
